Tonight, the 2012 NFL Coach of the Year and Offensive Rookie of the Year awards will be announced. The special show to announce the awards, called NFL Honors, will air at 9:00 PM ET on CBS.

Former 2012 Colts interim head coach Bruce Arians, now the head coach of the Cardinals, is considered the favorite to win Coach of the Year.

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck is considered a strong contender for the Offensive Rookie of the Year award, as are Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III and Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson.

The two-hour primetime awards special will broadcast from the Mahalia Jackson Theatre in New Orleans. Alec Baldwin will return to host the show after serving in the same role in the inaugural show last year in Indianapolis. Seven of the awards announced are from the Associated Press, including the AP Most Valuable Player.

If you recall, we did a little video breaking down the Offensive Rookie of the Year candidates a month or so ago. I still maintain Luck should win, but my instincts say RG3 will take the award.
